The winners of the 2017 Bristol Teaching Awards, a joint venture between the University and Bristol SU, were announced at an Awards dinner, hosted by the Vice-Chancellor in the Great Hall of the Wills Memorial Building on Tuesday 6 June.
The Bristol Teaching Awards recognise and reward those members of staff who have made an outstanding contribution to teaching, providing support for students and enhancing the student learning experience.
Bristol Biochemistry's Dr Paul Curnow was chosen for the University Award for Education (Biomedical Sciences) for his unit 'Science in Society, Business and Industry' on the SWBioDTP programme. Dr Curnow will be leading a similar unit as part of the new MSci in Biochemistry programme.
Dr Curnow said, “I was surprised and delighted to win this award. We are rightly proud of our teaching here in Biochemistry and it’s great to play a part in that.”
Prof David Stephens was also nominated by students for the Students Award for Outstanding Teaching (Biomedical Sciences).
